How many names are engraved to the Wall of Victims?

How can be names included to the list of identified victims?

Identification of more than half a million of victims of the Hungarian Holocaust requires persistent research efforts. At this moment, names of some 175,000 victims are engraved to the Wall.

Work on further identification of the names continues. It will be impossible to identify each and every victim, thus anonym, symbolic nametags are also placed on the Wall.

Visitors of the Memorial Center and visitors of the Center’s website can search the digital database of the victims. By filling in the Personal Data Form of the victims and returning it to our Institution, relatives or persons that have information about the victim, can initiate engraving the name to the Wall.
